  1. AWESOME. my lovely coworker has turned me into a pretzel junkie! Ever since she brought in an awesome edition of Better Homes and Gardens, everything’s pretzel’s for me now. Thanks!

  2. I made these tonight and I don’t know if I did something wrong but they were terrible. They tasted like baking soda water. Can you tell me why this would have happened? I made them just like your recipe. They puffed up and then when I put them on the baking sheet they fell. Smh???

    1. Hi Amanda, I’m sorry to hear about your pretzels. We have had really great reviews on this recipe and this is the first report we’ve had that they didn’t turn out how you had expected, and I am sure people would let me know!
      I wonder if you say they tasted like baking soda, did you use the correct measure for that ingredient? 1/3 cup, or 70g of baking soda? That is the only thing I can think that has caused the taste? maybe you used too much?

      1. Hi, Thank you for your feedback re the baking soda, as this is the second report we’ve had regarding the taste, I have advised reducing the amount used in the recipe for suture use. That said, we have had many many people make this, without mentioning, but I like to try and find solutions should a recipe on Lovefoodies not be as expected!
        Thanks once again!

    1. Hi Cindy, I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! But I haven’t tried it myself with homemade, so I can;t be sure. I’m just thinking give it a go! You could always try making a couple the next time you do a pizza as a test? and then you know. be sure to report back with your findings as now you have me curious!
